Meanwhile hundreds of innocent people are getting killed.
Did you catch that the DoJ "revised the definition of burglary" to get at those numbers????
They did away with the category of "home invasion," and called it a type of burglary, and then went on to say, that most burglars were unarmed!
So, 7% of all home-targeted crimes were home invasions.
In about 28% of these burglaries, a household member was present during the burglary. In 7% of all household burglaries, a household member experienced some form of violent victimization
Or do you think that 93 percent of home invaders break in empty-handed? Do they pick the lock on the front door with their fingernails
Are they pro-wrestlers, and just body slam their victims???
You are the one questioning my assertions.
I don't feel the need to write a research paper to please you, especially when you cannot see through the sophmoric doublespeak of the UCR.
1. The founding fathers never intended for any old idiot to have automatic weapons
2. If the govt wanted to, they could utterly DECIMATE you, your family, and your adorable little guns in a heartbeat with minimal effort
3. 2a = second AMENDMENT. When you go on about constitutional rights being non-negotiable you seem to completely ignore the fact that AMENDMENT means it has been AMENDED and yes, it can be again. If you think for one second that rules set CENTURIES ago should still be applicable without question today, then you're exactly why we have amendments
Get back in your box. If you think waving your glock around on your subsidised farm (socialism, btw - enjoy) would be ANY problem for the govt then you deserve everything you get.
Grow up. Nobody is scared of you,
You're traitors, not patriots. Shame on you.
Now, go back to worshipping your billionaire president and his immigrant wife.
Oh for God's sake will you people grow a spine.

Time and time again 2A supporters are told “nobody is coming for your guns.” Time and again 2A supporters are left baffled at how anybody can say that line with a straight face. Gun control advocacy groups, Hollywood, and any number of the political elite are entirely happy to cry “ban all the gunz!” as they sit in their walled compounds with armed security manning the gate.
Luckily, though, the oh-so-unbiased Vox has finally put it in writing. They’ve finally made it easy for 2A supporters to reply to the above claim easily and quickly, with a source, that shows definitively that “they” are most definitely trying to come for our guns. Does Vox make policy? No, of course not. And they certainly don’t enforce policy. What they can do, though, is excoriate the moderate left for not being extreme gun-grabbers who want anything more complex than a wheel gun banned and, if need be, confiscated by force. Somehow, Vox manages to acknowledge that existing gun control laws are rife with poor enforcement and application yet still claim those laws are nowhere near strong enough.
I hope that this kills the notion of “nobody is coming for your guns.” I don’t think it will, but I can hope. Just because one individual member of ATS isn’t coming for your guns doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of voices calling for exactly that.

There is no good reason for any gun that holds more than 25 rounds to be available to the public.
